C-MOS, Transistors, and C's. Oh My!
Overview of Knowledge
Java, Python, C, C++, PHP
The first language I learned, at age 11, was Java. I loved playing RuneScape, which was coded in Java, and I decided to host a server that mimicked the game. From there I learned
Python (to do some analysis, regression, etc.) at Washington & Jefferson College. With a program at LionBase
I have received a certification in their crash course to machine learning and data science.
Then at Columbia University, I have learned C, and C++. I would say that I know Java the best out of all of them.
As an Intern at FPoliSolutions and now a Consultant Software Engineer, I have learned PHP pretty well.
However, I understand memory usage, pointers, and memory adressing. I have earned an education on object-oriented programming and pointers.
Object-Oriented, Memory, 5-Layer Internet Protocol
This section is sort of an extension of the previous. Object-oriented and memory are important parts of programming. With further education on programming,
I have learned about how memory is structured: Stack, Heap, Static, and Code. That new in Java is malloc'ing in C, or C++, and that puts an item on the heap,
while automatic variables are on the stack. Java's garbage collector does all the freeing that must be done by the programmer in C. Additionally, I know
about some protocols such as HTTP and IP.
HTML, CSS, JSON, XML
With learning Java and other programming languages, over the years, I have picked up some knowledge on Hypertext Markup Language, Cascading Style Sheets,
VHDL, Logic & CMOS
At Columbia University, I have learned about Verbose Hardware Description Language (and programming FPGAs), the fundamentals of computer systems, and many logic gates (AND, OR, NAND, NOR, NXOR, etc.),
K-maps to simplify logic, adders/full-adders, multiplexers, processors, the physics of SRAM, DRAM & Registers (D Flip-flops). Yeah, it's a good time!
Opamps, Transistors, Capacitors, Inductors, Resistors
At Washington & Jefferson College and at Columbia University, I have learned all about electronics and the physics that make the hardware in computers work.
Math, Physics, Chemistry
At Washington & Jefferson College, I focused heavily on Mathematics and Physics. While I majored in Computing and Information Studies at W&J, I was a few courses shy
of minoring in Physics and in Mathematics. To name a few courses, I took Calculus I, II, III, learned linear algebra & Diff EQs, and Organic & Inorganic chemistry.
